    Man is the most feared animal on earth. What do you fear most?

    Perhaps – taxman, landlord, retrenchment, ghosts, dogs, registered mail, illness, death, poverty, failure, God, electricity, lightening, witchcraft, your ex-spouse, debt collectors, Satan, or whatever.

    I fear people who don't let the facts interfere with their opinions.  They seem to reside in Washington DC.

    Is it true about humans? If it is so, I think I would fear for the same Lol.

    I fear people who will not accept that others will have different beliefs and opinions from them.

    Lost in a jungle or on a peak in high mountains, facing elements on ice land or see, in the middle of hurricane, tornado or just mild storm or facing predatory animal...there are so many ways to feel insignificant and small on our planet Earth.
    But I assume we fear each other the most. There is nothing more threatening to our earth than an evil, indiferent man i guess.

    'Time' has numbed any previous fear of mankind, and there's nothing else to fear..

    humans are at the top of my list. i kind of understand animals,(except grizzlies) and only venture after them for food. i also understand that if they are hungry and carnevors, i should avoid them at all costs. but humans are a weird bunch. they will try to take what is not theirs, will kill for not believing in what they believe, or hurt each other for sick pleasure. their disrespect for their fellow human is truly scary. there are those who don't hate for silly reasons and many who would not steal, but they all have an evil side, even the nicest of them.
    i have met people who have lived in the same house for years and did not know their neighbors names. that is a fear i hope i never have. i like people even if they scare me. some are fun to be with and others fun to watch. but you never know what is in their minds. maybe my friend wants my wife. maybe my co-worker wants my pay. maybe my neighbor wants my house. problem is some will go to drastic measures to get what they want no matter how wrong. most animals only get what they need to survive,(except grizzlies). they live by instinct. people live by greed.

    Politicians.  They suck the joie de vivre from all they come in contact with and affect with their laws.  Under the guise of "helping".

    My fear would be death by water.  I think that would be one of the worst ways to die.

    I suppose I fear things that eat us (sharks, killer whales, Krakens) in the ocean.  I can handle just about everything else and have.  There isn't anything I can't kill with a shotgun. 

    During World War II German U-Boats sat outside one particular port in Iceland.  When convoys emerged they would be torpedoed and sunk.  Sailors wearing orange lifejackets were attacked by Kraken and eaten.  This was kept secret until the war ended.

    I'm not afraid of man, but I'm disturbed  of  evil schemes by others of his kind on his own kind.

    As long as the sixth senc prevail man is the most feared animal. For any other animal there is a dfenite purpose to kill another of the same species or different. But for man nothing is required.

    As get a little older and see a new generation and more barbaric news stories mankind is something to fear. the dehumanizing of people with tv dramas of psycho serial killers is something you should fear especially if you have kids. after that it is wild animals and being in their environment and them being expert killers for survival.

    I fear ignorance, the ones that cannot look past the color of ones skin, background, education. Everyone deserves respect even thy enemies if you think you have them. This will be the downfall of mankind, because we will not tolerate difference. Just do one kind thing for a stranger with no expectations of gain in return. Keep passing it on and this will be a better place.. Thank you Lester

    I fear those people who take innocent lives for the sake of their religion. They are  the misguided youths whom  we call terrorists or militants.. Almost the entire world is feared of these people.
